For a very long time, Plague Inc has been one of the most evolving and up-to-date game on mobile. With almost every recent real-world epidemic that has become viral, has been incorporated into the game. Plague Inc allows you to use different viruses and pathogens in order to eliminate the entire human population. While it may sound brutal and insensitive, it really provides a lot of insight on how viruses develop and infect. Indeed, if you happen to have played the game, then you know by now the major factors that you should avoid to prevent infection.
Today, we want to tell you about a new game that Ndemic Creations is introducing this year and it’s called Plague Inc: The Board Game. Here is the official description by the company:
Plague Inc: The Board Game is a strategic game of infection, evolution and extinction for 2-5 players. You are all deadly diseases and players must battle against each other to spread their plagues, develop new symptoms and ultimately wipe out humanity. Can you infect the world?
After almost 2 years in development, the smash-hit game with over 65 million players is now ready to infect your tabletop by combining the best bits of the original digital game with a unique table top design to create the world’s most infectious strategic board game.
Each player starts as a deadly disease that challenges the opponent disease in taking down the world. Your goal is to attempt to become the dominant virus that will resist in different weather conditions in order to survive and infect. Of course, you can upgrade your pathogen and evolve it, just like the normal Plague Inc gameplay. There are different strategies that you can implement in order to destroy your opponent’s disease, such as eliminating his major infected city with a bomb to prevent its outspread. It all sounds exciting and we can’t wait to see how it unfolds.
Considering that over 65 million players downloaded Plague Inc, we expect the upcoming board game to be just as viral. So far, we know that the game will be released this year but there is no specific date yet. Stay tuned with our website for more information on this game.
